My Scandinavian Home... Enjoy!
Hello, my name is >> Niki
I live in >> Malmö, Sweden and am originally London.
I am a >> By day I love having a good mooch around beautiful Nordic homes and then sharing them on my daily interior blog My Scandinavian Home.
I live in >> A house by the sea with my Swedish husband, step son (11) and two little girls (2 & 4)
My favourite part of my home is >> Our open plan kitchen / dining and sitting room area. When my family and I are all home doing our various bits and bobs we can still chat and laugh together from across the room.
My favourite room is >> Our dining area. I call this 'the engine' of our house as this is the area that brings us all together. Whether it's having supper with family or friends, making collages with the children, or sitting down with my husband to put together plans for our pipe dream sailing trip around the world (one day!) this is the heart of our home.
Our most recent purchase for our home >> Was a set of three pendant Porcelight P14 lamps by Danish designer Erik Magnussen to go over our dining room table. I love that by day they white but when you turn them on in the evening the whole lamp lights up with a warm golden glow.
My favourite place to shop for homewares is >> I am having an incredibly hard time selecting just one favourite place to shop for homewares, eeeek! In Malmö it's definitely Malmö Modern, a beautiful shop where the owners will go out of their way to help you with latest Scandinavian design items. Online I love Toast home, L'Affiche Moderne, Anthropologie, LET LIV, Design Collectors, Ferm Living..... stop me, or I could go on forever!
For me the most important thing about a home is >> Surrounding yourself with the people and items you love. Oh and lots of light (I live in Sweden after all!).
A house is only a home when >> At the end of the day, there's no other place you'd rather be.
